There are some lovely mercury-lit Thorn Precincts in the car park of the police station across the road (see here  Grin)

Other than that and the odd sprinkling of HPS, it's 99% LED  Cry

That's sad. I'm fortunate that my area still has lots of HPS and a decent amount of MV lighting, but that's not the case for a lot of towns.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

Probably the last two remaining GEC Z9480s from 1960 are the oldest here, they even have their original SOI ‘open’ autoleaks in!
Sadly, ones in a very dilapidated state, (although still running), and the other is mint, on the side of our community centre  Cool

Philips Luma Mini warmwhite LED fixtures around where I live and the oldest fixtures in our village are Norvegian IFA fixtures from the 1970’s use to be running 80W Mercury vapour lamps.

Next to my holiday house there are Schreder Saphire 1 fixtures from around 2000 with HPS 70W and on the other side of the river which is France there are Eclatec MIR 64, Mazda Junior and Eclatec Australe 53 fixtures.

Probably the oldest around me are some M250R1's in Meredith or some of the high mast lights in Concord.

Nothing beats the nice warm glow of incandescent lighting the streets. SAVE THE INCANDESCENT STREET LIGHTS!
